Vancouver Island is home to some of the most beautiful wonders in BC and that includes these breathtaking ice caves.

You can find them at Century Sam Lake in the Comox Valley region, where there are 8.7 kilometers of trails to explore.

Please note the trailhead is on a rough road requiring 4WD and good ground clearance and the hike may be shorter or longer depending on how close to the trailhead your vehicle gets you.

But you can also just take in the beauty by looking at the below pictures and dream of exploring the area when the road to get there is safer.
